In the Provençal countryside, between Lorgues and Flayosc, a winding forest lane leads to Château de Berne. The 1,700 acre vineyard, nestled in a pristine landscape, includes 1,200 acres of woodlands, populated with Mediterranean species such as umbrella and Aleppo pines, ancient oaks and olive trees as well as 143 hectares (353 acres) of vines.
Although Provence is mostly known for its rosé, Château de Berne produces red, white and rosé wine from this exceptional terroir bottled under the Château de Berne and Terres de Berne labels, both of which are classified under the Côtes de Provence appellation. For a number of years, Château de Berne has been a recipient of the High Environmental Value (HEV) certification’s top rating (Level 3). This strict standard was introduced as part of France’s conservation policy, and encompasses economic, ecological and social aspects of agriculture. In January 2018, the estate substantially increased its eco-friendly commitment with the aim of obtaining official organic certification.
With its historic vineyard and pristine surroundings, Château de Berne strives to provide a refined and welcoming atmosphere, where the spirit of Provence is embodied with understated elegance. Staying at Château de Berne’s five-star Relais & Châteaux hotel is quite an experience. Connoisseurs of food & wine, travel adventurers and those looking for rest and relaxation, will love the luxury accommodation and gastronomic experience, as well as the wide array of leisure activities including a spa, wine-tasting, tennis, cycling, a cooking school and year-round events (concerts, festivals, wine tourism and more). A stay at Berne is an immersion into an authentic Provençal lifestyle.
